  1. Looking For A Pup

    No, no pup is going to lose speed by getting them out and about at a young age. All pups, bred for working or otherwise, need to get out and about, but he was RUNNING IT AT 5, 6 AND SEVEN etc on the lamp, at 5 months, that WILL run the speed off a pup. That's it, I'm away to walk the camel a pup going out early, theres a good chance they will be faster,any dog that as their guts run out of them will start to lose heart,they then slow down because they are not really trying,i hope you understand now
  2. Looking For A Pup

    speeds not every thing, knowing you id say it was heart. the pup will get stronger and faster,id say once again you have not learnt by your mistakes,why don't you be honest and say what you really want, alsatian x or are you scared you might lose a few fans,knowing what to do and putting it into practice is two different things.. Mistakes I feel come in different views I think choosing wrongly mistake to much to soon mistakes ,but trigg here states the dog lacks a gear ,it will gain speed has you say right up till around three yrs old ,but will this be enough I believe a mans take and belief of his animal to be respected for just that and if he believes he ain't gonna hack it speed wise that's how it his.he running him.and it his what it his and one should respect the mans word atb bunnysWhen it comes to starting pups at work, patience is more than just a virtue, it's an absolute necessity. Don't care what type or cross you have, running rabbits at 4-5 months old is foolish and impatient, and you'll quite possibly curtail the potential adult speed. stamina and working longevity of the dog. And I don't mean 4, 5, 6 runs a couple of times a week, a few times is all it takes to ruin the dog's potential. Seen it plenty of times over the years, pup starts to get a little bit of pace about it, and they're all keen as f**k, so owner thinks 'great' let's get him/her some runs'. Why?! Wait until it's starting to mature a bit.Not singleing trigger2 out, but surely, any pup, especially one that was as big and gangly as his pup, should be left til it's older before giving it any runs at rabbits. . Look it's like this i don't believe it's got anything ta do with knocking a rabbit or 2over I believe the animal was doing that from a very early age ,and in some circumstances I agree ,but getting out and about early don't necessary mean running the guts out a pups freely with older animals,I will say it again there be times we see and it sticks and fa this animal that may be the case it's no big deal ,only the brave that move on reap the rewards eventually. There's nothing worse than some folk that keep lurchers da a decade and more disliking the animal each and more every day ,and believe me there's a few of these on here they had running dogs some of them decades and only had a small handful of animals now fa me they are either the luckiest b*****d in the world or ain't asking fa much from them or ain't got the balls or the balls ta declare a failure. It takes a good man to remove animals kept and reared from welps ta retry again like we says there's dog men and those that keep dog.and Triggs a dog man.atb bunnys. Getting any pup out and about is fine, but running them on 5, 6, 7 or however many on the same night aint gonna do any pup any good. And I never said running the guts out of it, which incidentally, running a 5 month old pup on that many aint far short of running the guts out of it. No one is going to agree on every aspect on when to start a pup, and I agree with you, keeping a dog which isn't what you expected, or you just dislike is stupid. But again like I've said, and not just trigger2, could be anyone, running a pup that young is a little silly its nothing to do with the dogs age,take an 18 month old out for the first time unfit. take a pup out from 8 weeks it will be months before it starts chasing hard , by that time it should be super fit. what ever you do you most use you brain,one thing i do know running hard when your fcuked rates high when it comes to pain

    seen a couple and they weren't that good. Not as quick as the collie lurchers on the day, and not as brave... Good hunters though in woodland and fellsideI'd have to see the parents working first like ! This foxhound X bull grey is suiting my needs at the moment great hunter and plenty of guts ! Never be a lamping dog which doesn't bother me Go for a fell hound or trail hound for a lamping dog! Much leaner than a normal foxhound. When you list the things a hound brings to lurcher lines it amazes me that they are not a popular cross but I must admit I wouldn't want too many knobs getting into hound crosses lol I'm very lucky as I can keep a few lurchers the dog im taking about will never see the lamp he has no need but u agree he brings a lot to the table lurcher wise he feets are great ! Stamina is unreal literally doesn't stop all day ! He's a nice dog to have around not everyone cup of tea but he's a massive part of my hunting and couldn't be with out the big b*****d now Yes pal I have a fell hound lurcher and I have seen the hound crosses on the lamp in short the hound cross brings amazing stamina, great drive and feet they are solid dogs built to work the British countryside and another thing the fell hounds are controlled by voice so they can't be too daft either! I suppose that is everything a gundog could bring but in a running frame. What about voice though? who'd give a f**k if a dog did yap a bit as long as it does it job,myself i wouldn't give a dam if a dog only had 3 legs as long as it done what i wanted, so stop picking stupid faults and fcuk off and do some knitting,

    in the 70s early 80s i had a alsation x for 8 or 9 years,not once did i come a cross another alsation x greyhound,thats why i know your full of shit, and how the fcuk does a dog keep tripping up, If you havnt seen one,then they definitly didnt exist. You never seen a a dog slip on the turns? No dont answer that. You are an idiot who tries to win arguments by being abusive and aggressive. you said they were common in the 70s 80s once again your wrong, iv seen many a dog slip, you said tripped quite a lot, big difference,most things you say you change you mind on the next post,like what you were saying about pups ,how many times did you change your mind on that,theres a few that think your right , there hundreds that know your full of shit Dont worry about it mate,its just a bit of fun. You are right,I should of said slipped when I said tripped. btw Ive changed my mind about Alsation crosses,I think they are very good dogs. Bird off this site has a good one. Have you seen Buck run then jeemes? No but somehow I feel I know all about him,or at least his height and weight!! we know where you get your information from , that you to a T,

    . Must say Ive had four and always tot return to them saying that this they all been tdifferent much his livestock. Getting the best from what hand ya dealt well that's what good handlers do coin the phrase dog men's and those that keep dogs similiar but entirely different. Atb bunnys. what way round were they bred
  10. Why Aren't Gundog Lurchers Popular?

    theres was never a lot of alsation xs even in the 70s they was few and far between.get your best dog and run it against birds joke , over 2 or 3 days to take away luck, and take one of your mates with you that way yowl look a bigger cnt than you already are Kin el, you seem an awfully aggressive type of person at times! Lol. But you are right, alsation x's were never a common type im not aggressive at all ,i don't like people who give advice when they don't know what there talking about, there is one thing iv learnt from him, i used to think he was an ass hole but he's not he's an arse hole, and il thank him for that. Ah righto. Well personally I think jeemes talks a lot more sense than the majority of people on this site regarding running dogs. I don't necessarily agree with everything he has to say, but he does make some very valid, sensible and interesting points. Anyway, take it easy fella, it's far too warm to get hot and bothered over an internet site he probably does make a lot of sense about some things and i can't say one way or another because i might not know the answer so i keep me mouth shut, but if you know the answer because you've been there many times before surely you should speak your mind, I have, and I just told you as well. But I'll repeat it anyway. I don't necessarily agree with everything he has to say, 'and i've told him so', but he does make some very valid, sensible and interesting points. Right, I'm away to walk me canary yes but he's still a wanker
